Coolant Recycling Should Be a Priority for All Machine Shops

As you’re looking at important items for your new metalworking business, be sure to evaluate coolant recycling systems. This is a system that should be part of your business from the day you open the door. There are many benefits to coolant recycling for both your bottom line and for your employees.


Cost Savings


This is the obvious one. Recycling coolant is a great way to save money. With the proper coolant recycling system, your coolant can be cleaned and reused indefinitely. This is a simple way to save money on the cost of coolant and the costs of proper environmentally friendly disposal. The money you spend to install the coolant recycling system will be recouped quickly in coolant savings. As low as three months for some systems!


Environmental Stewardship


Machine coolants are made with many chemicals that are toxic to humans and wildlife and should be kept out of our waterways and landfills. The less coolant that we have to dispose of, the better. Recycling the coolant to extend its service life is the best way to reduce its environmental impact.

Run a Healthier Shop with a Tramp Oil Skimmer

It’s hard to keep a metal shop clean. It’s well known that the dirt and grime employees must deal with makes the job unpleasant and can even contribute to health problems. The dirty tramp oil makes the air dirty, too, which can cause breathing complications for some people.


If you want to run a healthier shop, add a tramp oil skimmer to all your machines running coolant. It skims the dirty tramp oil off the coolant, removing it from the shop into a disposal bin. Running the tramp oil skimmer throughout the day will ensure that dirty oil is constantly removed from the shop’s atmosphere.


After just a few days, you’ll notice that your shop is cleaner and smells better. The air will be healthier to breathe, and employees will go home feeling cleaner at the end of the day.
Over time, you’re likely to see the number of sick days taken by employees decrease, as they are breathing healthier air. You may even see employee retention increase because people feel like they have a healthier place to work.


People with respiratory ailments, in particular, are more likely to stay healthy when they work in an environment with cleaner air.
As an employer, you can feel good about providing your employees a healthier place to work. However, you can almost certainly feel good about saving money, too. Coolant that has the tramp oil and particulate removed regularly can be used indefinitely.

Industrial Filtration Systems Reduce Many Costs

One of the easiest ways to save money in your metalworking shop is by recycling machine coolant. It’s estimated that you can save up to 80% on the costs of coolant by recycling. So, it just makes good business sense to install an industrial filtration system and coolant recycling equipment so that you can remove the dirty oil from your coolant throughout the day and reuse the coolant multiple times before disposal.


However, there’s another benefit to using industrial filtration systems in your shop that you might not have considered. Metalworking fluids can be hazardous to your health, as is dirty oil. Many employees who work in metalworking shops report more respiratory ailments than workers in other industries, and there are skin irritations associated with exposure to metalworking fluids.


Keeping your shop cleaner and healthier can help you reduce employee turnover and reduce the number of sick days in your shop each year. Both of these improvements help reduce costs, as well as ensuring you’re taking the best care possible of your employees. It makes your shop an overall better place to work, which is something your employees will appreciate.
